I have just returned from my birthday get a way to the desert. To recap, normally on the birthday weekend Goose and I go backpacking for 3 or 4 days. We have done that for 14 of our 15 years together. This year I decided to go somewhere that I rarely go, the desert. It's not that I don't like the desert, I do. It's just I really am a mountain girls, with green meadows, waterfalls, forests, streams, rivers, pond and so forth. I happen to be comforted by the fact that in the mountains I never worry about finding and getting water. The desert is a different story, as far as water in concerned. I have ventured out into the desert a few times, but each of those times I was with friends. There is comfort in that too. But for this birthday get a way I decided to go to the desert by myself. It really was wonderful. I did a little crying, a whole lot of walking and hiking, meditating, reflecting and praying. AND I did not die of thirst (found some water, I think Goose helped me out with this, no really I think he did). Anyway, here is a short video of one of the things I did. This is called Little Wild Horse Canyon. It's a slot canyon about 3.5 miles long. I hiked through it to the end and turned around and headed back to where I started. It was amazing! For those of you who have never hiked a slot canyon but think you might want to.... DO NOT do this if it is raining, or threating to rain, even if that rain is miles away. Check the sky's and forecast. If you get caught in a slot canyon when all that water starts to rush through the canyon you WILL be swept away, crushed against the walls of the canyon and or drown. With that said enjoy this video.
This Friday is This Moment See Beautiful. I hope you all will join in this blog hop. I will and I can tell you I am putting together a See Beautiful video of my time in the desert. See you on Friday!Blessings,
